I picked up my birthday present from the post office yesterday....Leathersoul's ravello shortwings. inlove.gif

As if people on this forum didnt already know, the Leathersoul crew are amazing. The salesman who helped me Lawrence Oki is a class act. I mentioned that these were my birthday present while ordering them and as if helping me secure a pair of this great make-up wasnt enough to make my birthday Mr. Okai sent me a card wishing me a happy birthday, a small bag of candy and a pair of socks! It was such a wonderful surprise. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Here is a group shot of my Ravello to show the different shades between batches.

Here's a picture for comparison between ravello and whiskey. (the whiskey shortwings are actually FS in B/S)

It's pics like these that make me fall ever deeper into the Alden addiction hole.

very nice, will need a pair of ravello boots in my life one day (after a pair of cigar and #4)

Excellent. Thank you, sir.

Wasn't Leather Soul the thread sponsor? It doesn't show that info any longer. I don't even see them as a SF affiliate. Where did you go Tom?

Thanks! And yes Tres Bein Shop (Sweden) made a #8 cap toe boot with antique edgetrim on the trubalance last (but all E width) during christmas time but they're long gone now.

@violethour1951: Yeah those are the Leffot daytrippers. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

@david3558: Post pics! I want to see them with a little bit of wear on them. It'll help me stop staring at them and put them to use asap.

I have some stitching that came loose or broke between the side of the upper and the tongue/vamp.  (underneath the strap, where I am pointing).  It is meant to hold the two parts together, and they are kind of separating (slightly) because of this.  Do you think I should get it repaired to prevent it from getting worse? Or hold off unless it becomes a problem?

Sorry to always have such a negative tinge in all of my posts.  On a more positive note, I am thinking of getting a pair of Ravellos to complete my LHS line up!
